Low Carb Flours and Some Low Carb Cake Ideas


If you are just starting a low carb diet/lifestyle you may feel confused with which low carb flours to use. You may never have used any of them before and how to use them properly can be daunting. Low carb flours do not behave like wheat flour, and how to use them in your old regular high carb recipes is a common question. Of course you may also be interested, or want to know more about them. If that is the case then Libby at 'Ditch The Carbs' site has a very good guide, and you can read it here 

If you may be looking for some low carb cake recipe ideas, why not consider one or all of these …

I wonder which one is your favourite?

Remember all the above suggestions are low carb - happy baking.

My wife is the baker in the family and she makes a first rate lemon poppy seed cake, which goes well with mid morning coffee. I will pass these recipes in to her and see what she thinks.

I love my daily square of rich, chewy, chocolate cake. It gives me that crunchy, chewy sense I crave. It is my failure. Maybe I'll try the chocolate pound cake.

You made me have an ordinary wee bit of Lebkuchen from ALDI!
Why ever I bought that (I actually don´t like sweets, but with Christmas arriving...).

Ginger and anything chocolate are always my favorites. I'm so glad you posted some low carb alternatives. I have a crazy sweet tooth and it gets completely out of hand during the holidays. Thank you for giving me some healthier alternatives! Love and hugs!

I don't think it occurred to me that one could have cake with cappuccino as its key ingredient.

Martha said...

I would love to try the lemon pound cake recipe, Jan. I've been on a low carb diet for 6 weeks now and would really like to have something as a treat with a cup of tea. Thank you for the valuable information you provide. ♥

They all look good. I generally go for carrot cake, but I may have to experiment further.
